|Stan White and Lin Geary, National Poetry Month, Art Waves #72|
Who better to celebrate National Poetry Month with than our seminal guest, Stan White.

For a fabulous, thought-provoking conversation, listen to Art Waves #72.

|Stan White, Second Interview, Art Waves #32|

|John Terpstra, Skin Boat, Art Waves #43|
John Terpstra’s book-length essays about geography & belonging, and about the all too brief lives of his brothers-in-law have given him a following even larger than that he has won with his poetry. When he released another of his eclectic explorations, Skin Boat: Acts of Faith and Other Navigations, Art Waves invited him to come aboard and share his secrets of chart and compass.
Keywords: non-fiction; prose; extended metaphor; spiritual exploration; St. Cuthbert; St. Brendan; cabinet-making; Christianity
|Jeffery Donaldson, Art Waves #118|
Writer and McMaster professor Jeffery Donaldson finds his Tourette's tics both a blessing and a curse, but for a poet they are definitely in the former category. His third collection, Palilalia, as well as his recently published fourth, Guesswork, both explore repetition and echo in ways that perhaps only a Touretter could. The reader/listener is likely to feel something of a tic in wanting to hear his beautiful poems again and again.
Keywords: Northrop Frye; Tourette's; palilalia; metaphor; Amy Clampett; Don McKay; Jan Zwicky; W.H. Auden
|Brian Kelly, Found Objects Sculptor, Art Waves #117|
Brian Kelly blends art and recycling to create something entirely new which speaks to the oldest impulses within us. He and his work are full of curiously satisfying contradictions, like serious humor. As whimsical as the sculptures he makes, Kelly will keep you slightly off-balance with his deeply felt, eccentric answers in Art Waves #117.
